Iconic Investigations


Iconic Investigations. Edited by: Elleström, L; Fischer, O; Ljungberg, C (2013). Amsterdam: John Benjamins.

Abstract

The contributions to Iconic Investigations deal with linguistic or literary aspects of language. While some studies analyze the cognitive structures of language, others pay close attention to the sounds of spoken language and the visual characteristics of written language. In addition, this volume also contains studies of media types such as music and visual images that are integrated into the overall project to deepen the understanding of iconicity - the creation of meaning by way of similarity relations. Iconicity is a fundamental but relatively unexplored part of signification in language and other meida types. During the last decades, the study of iconicity has emerged as a vital research area with far-reaching interdisciplinary scope, and the volume should be of interest for students and researchers interested in scholarly fields such as semiotics, cognitive linguistics, conceptual metaphor studies, poetry, intermediality and multimodality.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
